Paint Great Falls: Plein Air Competition

SEPTEMBER 9-13, 2020

The 6th annual event for Plein Air (“outdoor”) painting in Great Falls has taken place every year on the Wednesday-Sunday after Labor Day.   This year, the borders were expended to include all of Northern Virginia, allowing artists and viewers to keep their social distance and offer a variety of new venues.   Art enthusiasts enjoyed the exhibit and found it to be a great opportunity to find a wider variety of plein-air art to add to their collections.  Art is still available for purchase from the online gallery.

The registration limited of 25 artists was reached.  This year’s judge -Robert Johnson website– were announced online and monetary awards given.  See the 2020 Winners and Online Gallery  click here
